Grapes of Wrath (not to be confused with that dumb book we have to read in school) ROCK!!
Its when a guy beats a girl in her face with his nutsack, (the eye is a good target area)after unsatisfying intercourse.
"Yo bitch that sex was dissapointing, I am going to give you the grapes of wrath COME HERE, yeah take this testical beating for that terrible performance!"
1. a book by john steinbeck that's called "the most american of american classics" and yet still manages to carry the theme of marxism through the entire story.
basically a long rant about politics/economy in the 1930's on 2. the odd numbered chapters. the rest is the story of a family. the events that occur are not in any way pieced together by the end of the book and leave the reader feeling empty and confused. the only worthwhile chapter is chapter 25.

The people come with nets to fish for potatoes in the river, and the guards hold them back; they come in rattling cars to get the dumped oranges, but the kerosene is sprayed. And they stand still and watch the potatoes float by, listen to the screaming pigs being killed in a ditch and covered with quicklime, watch the mountains of oranges slop down to a putrefying ooze; and in the eyes of the people there is a failure; and in the eyes o...
An excellent book by a very good classical writer. Not liking it is common, but calling it a bad book is a typical symptom of being a stupid teenager

A school project that consists of smashing a pile of grapes with a mallet.
'The Grapes of Wrath? I don't get it.'
'Here's the grapes...and here's the wrath!'
A cluster of hemmroids petruding out of the swollen and streched out star of brown.
George Brett's grapes of wrath were so out of control he needed his vineyards lanced.
A little somthing I like to call my balls when they are bouncing off of your chin.
Behold my grpaes of wrath you skank
